Escape to the seaside village of Little Pondale with Part Three of this heart-warming and romantic, four-part serial.
Mia Ward was amazed to inherit her great-aunt Matilda’s thatched cottage in the tiny seaside village of Little Pondale – especially as Mia didn’t know she had a great-aunt Matilda. She was equally astonished to discover she’d only inherit the place if she lives there for a year.
But it didn’t take long for Mia and her friends, Ella and Garrick to settle in. Now Mia’s mum, Lori has joined them, and they’re all enjoying village life. Mia’s keen to overcome her fear of water and with Garrick by her side, she’s confident about the future.
Until a fortune teller’s predictions give everyone cause for concern. Now Mia’s not so sure of anything, except that someone still wants her to leave. That makes her more determined to learn all she can about Matilda – and the codicil.
But as the mists roll in over the sea, are autumn winds making passions cool? And when more than one unexpected visitor gives Mia a shocking surprise, is everything about to change?
Fun, Laughter – And A Good Mystery!
I’ve been really looking forward to the next part of this series, and I wasn’t disappointed!
The third instalment begins with Mia, Ella, Garrick, her mum – and indeed, the whole village – attending the local fete. Amidst the attractions, one of the most popular is the fortune teller who seems to have an uncanny knack with her predictions. Not everyone is good at sharing what they were told, but without a doubt everyone is affected.
Time has moved on to autumn in Little Pondale and Mia and Garrick are still a romantic item; Ella is cosying up and even Lori has a glow about her. Village life continues as usual .. all you have to do is breathe a thought and every resident knows about it. Mia continues with her quest to find out more about Mattie, the great-aunt she never knew about whose bequest is the reason why they are living in Sunbeam Cottage. It’s lovely to re-acquaint ourselves with all the locals as well as the main characters and this book sees plenty happening with some discoveries and a new range of questions popping up, priming the reader for the final read in the series, which I’m so looking forward to.
This is a well thought-out read, split into bite size pieces – each well planned and beautifully written. The varied characters are wonderfully created and very entertaining. This author weaves a fine tale with plenty of fun, laughter and a good mystery – or two – thrown in!
